THE SUPPORTED INDEPENDENT LIVING PROGRAM IS AN INDIVIDUALIZED PROGRAM THAT SUPPORTS PARTICIPANTS TO ACHIEVE THEIR IDENTIFIED PERSONAL GOALS WITH ONE-TO-ONE ASSISTANCE.
SIL supports adults with various abilities both in their homes and local community. SIL workers are able to follow intensive rehabilitation programs, to ensure the individual is working towards maximum independence. SIL is offered to individuals throughout Greater Vancouver and the Sunshine Coast.
Some of the tailored supports SIL provides fall under these broad categories: skill development, community integration (social, recreation, leisure programs), outreach and customized employment programs.
SIL services are offered seven days a week and are closed during statutory holidays.
A referral from Fraser Health Authority, CLBC, MCFD, or Vancouver Coastal Health or any third-party funding is required to receive SIL one-to-one services.
